2018-19 Houston Rockets Thread of running it back (mainly)

Recommended Posts

I’m watching on an iPad with headphones... could you guys hear that woman screeching on every Laker shot/possession?

And she’s still doing it after the game...

I wonder who that was. If anyone deserved to get punched during that game it was the screeching individual.

Lebron better used to losing 

Yeah, these commentators keep saying they are making the playoffs, they are not.

Kobe dickriders chanting “81” at the post game set.  After a loss. 3 years after he’s retired. Sad.

It's really all they have to hold on to.

Wake me up when the playoffs start. Disney pushing lebron so hard is fucking hilarious. They were putting up most points scored in a home opener stats and a cut out of Lebron over cfb all day. The NBA has great stories in front of them but instead they are going to try to push their Cali teams best they can. Instead of showing Harden blow by Lebron for the dunk on McGee, or Harden blow by for the layup on Lebron... they show Lebron highlights and the idoits fighting on the court. 

Gerald Green was the only Rocket playing hard. 

The Lakers aren't a playoff team but they still imploded themselves. They probably make it as an 8th seed somehow.

That was fun. Hopefully CP3 isn't suspended too many games. I mean, it was only Rondo. With his history, doesn't everybody want to punch him?

He spit on CP3. Chris only mistake was to push at his face instead of just throwing punches. The NBA is a joke and will probably suspend the two men the same amount - why not just throw punches the instant a scrub like Rondo starts asking for it?

Ingram deserves 25 games min but won’t get it. 

1. Because of his hair

2. Because of the incredible bitch move push in the back because you got abused by Harden. He started the entire thing. Good on Stevenson to take him away immediately. 

Everyone was kind of shocked. 

3. The running in from half court and throwing a cheaps shot haymaker WTF. Besides the scrum this asshole was the only one out of control. 

Rondo needs to be suspended more than Paul

1. Spit

2. He threw the punch, Paul simply defended himself. What is he supposed to do? Get spit on and punched and not respond to avoid suspension?

but the NBA won’t consider any of that

Fuck Ingram. Fuck the Lakers

Heh, even with "the worlds best basketball player" holding him back by his neck he smashed Rondo.

Wish the had the shot of the right handed upper cut he gave Rondo to the chin

Lakers media brigade is at it, even defending Ingram.  "Oh, that was an offensive foul on Harden.  Harden was flopping as usual blah blah." Hilarious

I'm going to post in this thread just to say one thing: Lakers fans are just the fucking worst. It was nice when the Lakers were irrelevant. I hope you as Rockets fans will come to hate them as much as I do. Hell, you probably do already.

Spit gate is pretty much solved with this video. 

Nice angle. Reminds me of a Han/Rondo spits first kind of shot.

He'll probably go make yet another useless song about California unless of course he kills himself after relapsing into dope.

What a fucking joke. Should be more like Ingram 15 games, Rondo 10 games, Paul 2 games.

The NBA stands to benefit if the Lakers are doing well, which they aren't and won't be this season.

Lol @ Anthony Kiedus getting run. Dude must have been pretty coked & boozed up.  

I remember seeing a ref barking at someone sitting courtside and wondered wtf that was about.

The “strategy” this season was to get guys who would win less in the regular season but be better equipped for the playoffs. We’re doing just fine on the first part. In April/May we will see if the second part comes true. Looks like we desperately need bench help

3 games in and I think our defense is gonna blow. Pretty amazing how much Coach B had a impact when he left, because I know ariza was a great defender but he wasn't THAT great.

Outside of Paul and Harden missing the playoffs this team will play in the WCFs.

Yeah, I feel like this year is going to be a bit of a hangover year after going so hard for 100 games last year. The Warriors kind of did this last year, where they didn't really take the regular season seriously after winning a championship and 67 games. It takes a toll on the players physically and mentally, and I think this could be a year they just kind of coast to a 2-4 seed. Can still do damage in the playoffs from there, but again, it's unlikely we beat the Warriors in 7 games with this squad. Unless Minny gives us Butler for EG+Nene and filler, we aren't likely going to win more than 2 games in that series. It's just he unfortunate state of the NBA right now.

Houston shouldn't give up just yet -- there is actually a pretty good chance there will be some drop off from both Iggy and Draymond this year.  Cousins might not end up that healthy.  Curry could get injured.  You never know.

Yeah, I'm not saying they should give up, just that they shouldn't try to kill themselves to win 65 games again. You can still make the Finals as a 2/3 seed, and win 15 less games that whatever the Warriors do.

Nobody is "giving up" after 3 games, lol.

We'll be fine.  You have 3 new players getting PT, it's going to take a little time to figure things out.

As a casual Rockets fan outside of Houston without any way to watch them on tv usually, I just caught part of the Lakers game. So we are still rocking the Asian silk pajama uniforms huh? Dress for the job you want, Morey! Dress in silky Chinese jammies and you look soft as shit.

Nope.

They're regular jersey material and cut, like the rest of the NBA.

Now, that being said....say what you want about the colors, striping, font...those are all fair game for being shitty, but the shiny, silky jerseys of 00-10's are gone.

Utah at home tonight and you gotta think Utah is coming for the revenge. Fuck the Jizz! I know some here think we will just kick it in and I hope we do but we don't need to start the season 1-3 while more than likely leading the league in Points given up. Harden is gonna need to drop 50 tonight.
